Election information


On March 18, 2020, political subdivisions were authorized to
postpone their election. Town Council action was taken on March 19, 2020, to postpone the May 2 General Election to November 3.

For those candidates who originally filed for the May election, the postponement does not have the effect of reopening the candidate filing period, nor authorizes a new ballot drawing. However, deadlines relevant to the withdrawal of candidacy, or declarations of ineligibility, are applicable. 

General Elections

Flower Mound general elections are usually held on the first Saturday in May. Items listed on general election ballots for consideration could include Town Council positions, Charter amendments, CIP projects, and bond items. Election ballots can also include county, school district, and state propositions.

Council Members

Flower Mound Town Council Members are elected “at-large,” each representing the entire community. The Flower Mound Town Charter was amended by the voters on November 8, 2016, resulting in a change from two year to three year terms, which includes a 7-year transition plan as outlined in the graphic at the bottom of this page.

In 2020, both Places 2 and 5 will be for three-year terms.

  Each member of the Council must meet these qualifications:

  • Be a qualified/registered voter of the Town
  • Be 21 years of age or older on the first day of the term to be filled at the election or on the date of appointment
  • Have been a resident of the town for at least one year prior to election date
  • Shall hold no other public office except that of Notary Public or a member of the National Guard, military reserve, or Coast Guard reserve

Additional Elections

Under the direction of the Town Council, elections can also be called throughout the rest of the year if necessary. For more information regarding a Town of Flower Mound election or voting procedures, please checkout the 'Contact Us' column to the right and reach out.
